Wonder of the World: Jan. 19-Feb. 4

Wonder of the World

JANUARY 19 – FEBRUARY 4
Nothing will prepare you for the dirty little secret Cass discovers in her husband’s sweater drawer. It is so shocking that our heroine has no choice but to flee to the honeymoon capital of the world in a frantic search for the life she thinks she missed out on. It’s a wild ride over Niagara Falls in a barrel of laughs as Cass embarks on a journey of self-discovery that has her crossing paths with a blithely suicidal alcoholic, a lonely tour-boat captain, a pair of bickering private detectives, and a strange caper.

Directed by Robert Horn and produced by Kim Cappiello.

Winner of seven Tony Awards in 1972, Follies is a multi-layered story that has been called Sondheim’s greatest masterpiece.
